CTIA Fights Back -- Files Lawsuit Against SF for its Cell Phone Right-to-Know Ordinance

Sun Jul 25, 2010 - 8:27 PM EDT - By Annie Latham

This is a follow-up to a story we posted on 23 June.

On Friday, CTIA-The Wireless Association filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court Northern District of California San Francisco Division to block enforcement of the San Francisco "Cell Phone Right-to-Know" ordinance. The ordinance challenges the Federal Communication Commission's (FCC) determination that all FCC-compliant wireless handsets are safe by mandating that retailers post Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) values.

The CTIA believes the ordinance misleads consumers by creating the false impression that the FCC's standards are insufficient and that some phones are "safer" than others based on their radio frequency (RF) emissions.
